My mission is “A greener world with Trees, Nature and Food for People”.

In other words, my mission is to contribute to a balance between Planet, People, Profits and Prosperity in the country side of the tropics and the Netherlands. Since 1972 I realized this mission through planting high quality trees, protecting nature and through motivating farmers in sustainable food crop production.
